I like it when friends play nice. Such is the case with Jennifer and Carl Mazzanti teamed with our mutual friends at WatchGuard to produce a computer security case study. This cooperation really embodies the spirit of James Kernan’s speech at SMB Nation Fall 2009 on how to work with vendors. It reflects a certain maturity and change in the industry I’ve personally seen over the past few years where the vendor is an ally, not an enemy. Read the details here!

Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) October 20, 2009 — Computer security is on the minds of most businesses these days and it’s no different for schools and administrators. Andover Regional Schools needed a better security solution for its network and eMazzanti Technologies, Hoboken, New Jersey, provided the right answer. The solution included several WatchGuard product solutions–a story unique enough to garner both a written and video case study opportunity for the school under the direction of WatchGuard.
“WatchGuard selected eMazzanti and Andover for this special case study treatment because of the great implementation of our technology that solved several critical network problems at the same time,” said Linda Schnell, senior field marketing manager, WatchGuard.
For Andover Regional Schools, there were four network priorities it wanted to address as it looked to improve its computer network according to Bill McNeir, director of technology. “We needed to protect students from bad web content, improve internet performance and setup policy-based routing which virtually doubled the internet capacity.”
The fourth area of concern for Andover was budgetary restrictions. eMazzanti Technologies had a powerful solution for that issue as well. “eMazzanti’s eCare service provided 24×7 managed support for a predictable, fixed-price. This approach worked perfectly with Andover’s three-year budgeting cycle,” said Jennifer Mazzanti, president, eMazzanti Technologies.
Andover Regional Schools were able to solve both its network and fiscal issues with a powerful WatchGuard security solution designed and implemented by eMazzanti Technologies.
